If I look carefree and nonchalant in these pictures, it's probably because my smile is frozen to my face. Taking pictures outside in the wind chill and snow has proven to be a test of endurance. (I luckily had a friend with me for this photo shoot, or else my fingers would have been blue in the final shots). With no space to shoot indoors, I'm desperately looking for options that would preclude me from having to take off my coat outside for the sake of a picture.
Also, last week's post on how to wear your dresses in the wintertime turned out to be pretty popular, so I'm dedicating this next week to layering ideas for freezing mornings. Here I'm demonstrating another one of my favorite ways to build a winter outfit with dresses--a v-neck with a silk blouse peeking over the neckline, finished with tights, boots, and topped off with a checked scarf.
